Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive in Kenya

Your adventure begins today as you arrive at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Kenya. Here you'll be met and transferred to the nearby Wilson Airport for your flight to Nanyuki where you'll once again be met and transferred to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Settle into the Ol Pejeta Bush Camp, a traditional tented safari camp set on the banks of the beautiful Ewaso Nyiro River and your home for the following three nights.
Days 2-3

Enjoy a hands-on safari experience

Your days are spent discovering the unique and thriving environment of Ol Pejeta. With the picture-perfect Aberdares Mountains and snow-capped Mt Kenya as a backdrop, this wildlife conservation success story is fully committed to local community upliftment as well as delivering an excellent safari experience.

Go on early morning, afternoon and evening game drives to search for the area's abundant wildlife, which includes Africa's Big 5. As the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, this is also the ideal place to search for these highly endangered animals on nothing less than a thrilling rhino-tracking patrol.

Get closer to the details on guided nature walks and get involved in conservation as you participate in the wildlife research programmes that are a hallmark of the conservancy. Return to camp for sundowner drinks and evening meals under the African stars.

Day 4

Travel to the Laikipia Plateau

Enjoy a delicious breakfast before embarking on a drive to the Laikipia Plateau, taking in the beautiful scenery of the Rift Valley as you wind your way to Loisaba Lodge, an exclusive safari lodge perched high on the Plateau where you'll be spending the next three nights. Unpack and freshen up before meeting your hosts to plan your days ahead as there is plenty to do and see in this dramatically scenic region. Finish off with a dip in the pool and settle down with a sundowner drink, enjoying the stunning views over the valley.

Days 5-6

Discover Loisaba

The next two days are yours to enjoy all the adventure activities available at Loisaba. Situated in a private nature reserve, you can explore the environment by horseback, 4X4, mountain bike or even on a camel-back safari. Return to the lodge for a relaxing spa treatment or massage as you enjoy the views of the unspoilt Karissia Hills and unwind in style. Sit back on your private deck, cool down in the pool or even play a game of tennis as the sun sets over distant mountains.

Day 7

Arrive in the Masai Mara

Enjoy one last breakfast at Loisaba before transferring to the local airstrip for your flight into the Masai Mara, Kenya's flagship park. Travel to Elephant Pepper Camp, a seasonal tented camp situated in the exclusive Mara North Conservancy and your home for the following three nights. This luxurious camp is the ideal base from which to explore this classic big game destination.

Days 8-9

Explore the never-ending Mara plains

Home not only to the great wildebeest migration - billed as the 'greatest show on Earth' - the Masai Mara has earned its global reputation as one of Africa's best destinations to view predators, abundant plains game and prolific birdlife. Enjoy day and night game drives as well as guided nature walks to search for the Mara's legendary wildlife. Knowledgeable and experienced rangers will be your guides and teach you all you need to know about this rewarding destination.

Spend the hottest part of the day relaxing at Elephant Pepper Camp or going on a cultural visit to meet red-robed Maasai tribespeople who migrate throughout the park with their cattle. Experience the essence of a safari as you enjoy breakfast or sundowners far removed from civilisation in a quiet and tranquil spot and return to the camp for a hearty dinner and drinks around the campfire.

Day 10

Return to Nairobi

Enjoy one last bush breakfast before you say goodbye to the Kenyan wilderness and make your way to the local airstrip for your flight to Nairobi. Here you'll be met and transferred to Ole Sereni Hotel where you'll spend the night, taking time to reminisce about your safari adventure and prepare for the next leg of your journey.

Days 11-14

Indulge in island living

Start a completely different adventure today as you transfer to Nairobi Airport where you'll catch a flight to the Seychelles. Once you've landed and enjoyed your first views of these incredible islands, you'll be met by a representative from the Four Seasons Resort who will transfer you to the hotel, situated on the archipelago's main island of Mahe. Settle into your treehouse-style villa in this luxurious hilltop retreat as you start your four-night island getaway.

Your days will be spent relaxing and enjoying the many fun and exhilarating activities offered at the Four Seasons. Lounge on the incredible protected stretch of pearly white sand or swim in the warm, clear waters of the Indian Ocean. There are plenty of water-based activities available such as kayaking, snorkelling, wind surfing and scuba diving and you can explore your tropical surroundings on hikes, running trails or relaxing beach strolls. Return to the resort to relax and unwind in the professional spa, join a yoga class or simply find a comfy couch in which to curl up with one of the library's many books.

After one last delicious breakfast on the island you will return to the airport where this incredible journey comes to an end.
